Forum: texts Subject: How to upload to The Computer Magazine Archives

I have scanned in Creative Computing v04 n02 (Mar-Apr 1978) which is missing from "Ebook and Texts Archive > The Computer Magazine Archives > Creative Computing Magazine". What is the process for getting this pdf file added to that archive? I tried the Upload link, but there's no way to select the correct archive.

I would suggest:
(i) Upload the book anyway, and then request on the forum to change the collection. I suggest that the identifier follow the collection’s format, i.e. ‘creativecomputing-1978-03’. (This will catch those who are trying to get to the desired volume by directly editing the IA url.)

(ii) Wait for a few days. If the collection isn’t changed, write a review on the preceding and following issues, saying that you have added the missing volume. That is the best you can do by yourself. Then, if anyone is looking for vol. 4, no. 2 by browsing the IA catalog, he will hopefully try 4/1 or 4/3 and thus find your upload. (If you have put a good description, your upload will be found by anyone using the IA search, whether you write a review or not.)

Collection Page:

Preceding and following volumes:
http://archive.org/details/creativecomputing-1978-01
http://archive.org/details/creativecomputing-1978-05
